And it should be pointed out, that if someone went and posted every good review of "In Rainbows" in that thread, Monty would've called such behavior pointless and insufferable. But as long as they're on his side....


There's a huge difference between posting reviews about In Rainbows and posting reviews pre-release about a self exiled rock legend madman with mental illness releasing a very good rock record 17 years after his last album. It's very big news, and it's an absolutely amazing comeback - the greatest in rock history.


how much is Axl paying you?


Not even close to what Jay Reatard and Frightened Rabbit pay Simakos.


that's funny you should say this because i think jay reatard has got something that axl rose lost a long time ago. this new record is an embarrasement. but it's okay, we shall see if you would still listen to it in february.


Jay Reatard doesn't have a pimple on Axl's ass. Come on.

Isn't it bizarre that a lot of people are basically rooting for Axl because he's the underdog at this point? What a difference 14 years makes. Will Montana and all these critics give Phil Collins this kind of deferential treatment the next time he puts out a record?

"Phil writes straightforward lyrics about love and isn't self-conscious about it, unlike these indie bands sitting on the fence disguising their feelings with vague lyrics about god-knows-what."
"LETS GET SOME FUCKING ENERGY UP IN THIS BITCH MOTHERFUCKERS! You are not resigned to a fate of slow, painful death. The world is not as Radiohead and Portishead see it. "Oh the suffering! Oh the suffering, I feel the weight of the world and all it's pain" FUCK YOU......Be the grizzly, tear some shit up, rather than tearing yourself up." -- Montana, 12/21/08

It's not bizarre at all. The guy has always been a headcase. He's not pretending. He's not putting on a front. He's really like that. It isn't an act. When Cobain asked him to be the godfather of his kid, Rose challenged him to a fight. He's nuts.

What's shocking the world at this point is how a 46 year old madman in exile managed to release such a high octane, no holds barred piece of work like this 17 years later. It's an amazing accomplishment.

Who else ends an album with a track called "Prostitute", and then has these sweet strings and light piano closing out the album?


Well, Phil Collins had the sheer balls to START an album with a song about a prostitute on Genesis and that album closed out with easy-listening synths. Except the Genesis song about a prostitute is weirder, more musically interesting and rocks harder than Axl's "Prostitute". But congratulations to Axl for all the positive reviews of his new record. That's one more win for bullshit rock mythology!

HA HA! HAaaaaaaaaauuuuuuggghh......

Now that we are past the point, lets get on to the actual review of the album. It doesn’t suck. In fact its pretty damn good.




http://www.canada.co...7b-37754b56c179



We can partly blame the Auteur Era for this. In the 1950s and '60s, there was no "five-year delay" between albums. You hit the studio and cranked out the three-minute gems with a gun in your neck. The '70s opened us to the glories of artist self-indulgence (refer to sidebar).

And November 2008 opens us to expectations. Seventeen years? The very sound of Chinese Democracy would have to tear a wormhole in the cosmic fabric and reveal The Afterlife to justify the wait. It would have to be Nevermind Sgt. Zoso's Blonde on Main Street.

Is it? Does Axl Rose have the artistic mojo and frame of reference to justify all this? Could anyone? The review on this page offers one opinion. Early audience opinion is hard to read: Did the title track zoom to No. 1 rock track on iTunes this week because fans love it, or for sheer curiosity?

In any case, Axl Rose has already won. An angry hillbilly who became a hard-rock Howard Hughes, he has already struck a victory in a pop marketplace otherwise stocked with mall clones. So welcome back, Jungle. No matter what the global jukebox thinks, Chinese Democracy has arrived in North America, and the people will weigh its merits against the long wait. And Axl Rose will stand out, the madman in the crowd.

Incidentally, the Sistine Chapel took Michelangelo four years. The Vatican collected all royalties.

There are barely 48 hours to go before the release of perhaps the most widely anticipated album in rock music history. Yet its creator ,Axl Rose, is nowhere to be found.

According to one gossip columnist, the 46-year-old recluse was last seen at a restaurant called The Bagel Café in Las Vegas. As usual, there were no photographs to prove it.

This thing really is a grower.

Admittedly, I outgrew GnR before I even left high school (1989) and have never heard UYI, but even with that, the last 2 decades of ridiculousness would seem to have relegated this guy to Corey Feldman status. I don't understand why anyone is legitimizing this...other than for a free Dr. Pepper, that is.

to bad you cant see how amazing appetite is. it really is one of the best hard rock cds of all time.

also the new cd really does have some good songs on it...much better than i thought it would be.
i only start threads when im drunk. im scared of the ridicule you will impose when im sober.

I find myself growing more and more in comfort with my hatred for this album. OK, so it isn't terrible. It's actually pretty damn good in a few spots. But it's not great, at all. It should be great. Maybe I'm asking for too much. Who knows. 17 years, though.

where do we gooo new?!!?

seriously the best review i have read for this album, even though i don`t agree with a lot of it. I do agree with Catcher In The Rye, that seems to be the song that sticks out to me

I would go on record to say that this is the release of the year, though i will say the new animal collective is album of next year, having gone to one of those listening parties. I don't know where this places me in monty's book. this feels like the last album like this maybe ever, animal collective album sounds like everything i like about new music.

I'm not saying, I'm just saying....

Just kidding Monty. Nice review on something that you seem to care deeply about. Wish I could feel the same way about this record, because I wanted Axl to release a face-melting record that re-defined music. Who knows? Maybe he will.... in 2025.
